tumblr_mj7wtf2u4A1qkv0ero1_500Lasagna is a fantastic classic because there are so many ways to customize it. You can use all different vegetables, herbs, themes or proteins. The way I keep my versions lighter is by using lower fat (not fat-free) cheese and fat-free ricotta (or in this case sour cream). It takes a while to bake but just minutes to pull together, and it makes eight servings so pack up the leftovers for easy, healthy, delicious on-the-run lunches or dinners!
